Shea Butter

Shea butter 
Butyrospermum parkii
 
Shea butter is a valuable oil extracted from the nut of the African shea tree with excellent moisturising and hydrating properties. It is used to nourish and protect skin, increasing suppleness and softness, and in hair products it promotes softness and shine.
 
It can provide some natural UV sun protection up to SPF6, and is easily absorbed. It is similar to cocoa butter but lighter. Shea butter is a traditional precious oil, and it is used by some indigenous Africans in ceremonies.
